After the invention of video games, ‘Short Message Service’ is by far the best thing that could have happened to the youth of the world. Short Message Service or lovingly shortened as SMS, has been one of the most significant means of exchanging information in the modern era of thumb twiddling youth. They are fast paced, tech savvy and almost always running short of time as well as mobile talk-time. Advances in technology makes them engrossed with computer and electronic gadgets for a better part of their time and sometimes, even picking up the phone to type a message seems to be a herculean task. Much like the youth is the industrial sector that thrives on youth’s desires.
The advertisement sector finds it prohibitively expensive on time and money to employ teams for typing advertising SMS on mobile phones and sending them to different numbers in a bid to garner customers. But with continued innovation in the field of technology, the divide between all sorts of communication methods is lapsing and means are being invented to extract more time from our already congested lifestyles and more juice from the limited resources. Typing with a keyboard is easy, and an add-on is that typing repetitively is no longer necessary, do it once and we are set. Use a computer and broadcast the SMS.
